Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil is a tasty, versatile, healthy and British alternative to olive oil. Rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9, it contains the least saturated fat of all oils (less than half that of olive oil!) – and that’s good, as current advice confirms a diet high in saturated fat is linked to poorer heart health. It has less monounsaturated fat than olive oil, but a bigger proportion of polyunsaturated fat, which helps to lower LDL cholesterol. Plus, Rapeseed Oil contains considerably more vitamin E than olive oil – a tablespoon provides a fifth of our daily need for this powerful antioxidant.
A high burn point (220ºC) makes it a fantastic choice for roasting and frying as it allows it to retain its nutrition credentials, and its delicious nutty taste and beautiful golden colour make it ideal for drizzles, dressings, sauces and marinades.

And Cold Pressed? No chemicals have been used to extract the oil so that it retains its goodness just squeezed straight from the seed.
